It’s been a busy month for me; back to back weekends of mini-vacations! Of course, I’m sure there are plenty of people who travel frequently for business and/or pleasure, but for me it’s a rare enough occurrence. Last week I drove up north to visit my college town and see some friends; this weekend I flew up north again to visit different friends and family in the Bay Area. Some people have
begged me to move up north pointed out that I really ought to just go back to NorCal, since I have a lot of my close friends up there, but I’m a loyal SoCal girl. But I won’t rule anything out, since who can tell the future?
I’ve been to San Francisco often enough that it’s not really a “destination” any more; I can go and not worry about trying to squeeze in as many touristy spots as I can in a weekend. I’m just content being with people I care about and if I can see the Golden Gate Bridge at the same time, well then that’s awesome! The weather was absolutely beautiful this weekend; probably because Mother Nature knew I was visiting and decided to make the sun shine just for moi 🙂
Notable things from this weekend include going to the Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building and coincidentally running into my old housemate of 2 years; talk about perfect timing! I haven’t seen her in 2 years and it was really nice to reconnect and briefly catch up with her. Visited with high school pals and some relatives, so I fulfilled my social interaction quota for the month (I kid, I kid!) I also ate
some a LOT of delicious food, all healthfully prepared (because SF is a pretty big foodie town) and spent a glorious afternoon with one of my best friends walking along the waterside from Pier 39 to Ft. Mason and thinking about taking a bike ride but ending up lying down at Ghirardelli Square and napping on the grass.
Try not to be too jealous 🙂 And of course, I brought some jewelry pieces to jazz up my outfits (remember I’m trying a little harder in the wardrobe department!) I brought pieces that were simple enough to not overpower my otherwise casual day outfits, and fancy enough to wear out when I went out at night.
